How To Sell Your Home During The Coronavirus Crisis

If a hectic schedule makes it difficult for you to show your property, give your estate agent a set of keys to show it when you’re not around. That way you can monitor the number of viewings plus your agent won’t turn up with prospective buyers while you’re in the shower, or worse. If you provide your agent with a set of keys, they should be stored securely and never released to anyone except authorised people such as surveyors. In a multi-agency agreement, there are no restrictions on how many agents a seller can instruct and no fixed term either.

The agents market the property simultaneously and the seller pays only the one that introduces a buyer who contracts to purchase the property. If you choose to list your home on the MLS, you decide how much of a BAC you are willing to pay.

Both of these terms must be explained in writing if they are used in a contract. One of her parrots, Wrangler, happily squawked away during her interview with NPR.

We don’t like it either but not all agents will work for a flat fee like Homie. Every home sale is unique – involving a unique property, and a unique seller that have specific needs, goals and limitations. Or, you may just need a sales plan that caters to your specific situation. The best way to determine what your options are is to speak to your Realtor. He or she can look over your specific home and you can explain what you want/need. Then, your real estate can help to guide you through the steps of selling your home, on your terms. Sometimes in a home sale, the negotiation between a buyer and seller can be arduous.

If you choose to add your home to the MLS, you will need to specify how much Buyer Agent Commission you are willing to pay the buyer’s agent. Most sellers offer a typical commission of 2.5{8704f81107b584f493e88decf90659238c21f561fbbecd1b3b8ed03ce440a1aa} to 3{8704f81107b584f493e88decf90659238c21f561fbbecd1b3b8ed03ce440a1aa} of the price of the home.

The estate agent should try and obtain the best possible price for you. You do not have to accept the first offer put to you and should not be rushed into making a decision quickly. If you appoint more than two estate agents on a ‘multiple agency’ basis, only the estate agent who sells the property will be entitled to the commission. Again, the rate of commission is usually higher than for a sole agency.
